Hello! My name is Michelle or Shelleybelly and I am 36 and live in Eastern Illinois. I work full time and am wife to Brian and mom to 2 boys and a girl - Taylor (13), Danny (3) and Lyndsay (2)
. I have always had a weight problem
. My lowest weight was 142 to which I was able to maintain for 3 years
after my divorce. Once I met Brian, it was bye bye 142. We were together for a year and we married May 5, 2001 and I weighed 160. Two weeks later, I found out I was pregnant with Danny
. When I delivered in January, 2002 I weighed 230. By walking and counting calories I was down to 194 in December. But Santa had a big surprise for me, yes I was pregnant again
. So long hundreds. By the time I delivered Lyndsay, I was at my all time high 263
. In the last two years, with the help of weight watchers and counting calories I am down to 217. Well after looking at some pictures and seeing how big I am, I realize it is time to get below two hundred again. I am going to lose 75 pounds. My short term goal is to be below 200 by the end of January. It might take me awhile, but I plan to take it off this time and keep it off. I am looking for a buddy/motivator for this weight loss journey.
